I see something [a piece I wrote 5 years ago]

I see something.

It’s such a nice day we ought to be out there,

Under the sun.

It’s as if the whole world is gonna go up in flames –

One second ago the rabbit was nibbling away at the grass merrily,

Then the next, all I see is a barren land.

Tik tok tik tok.

All I see is a huge left eye in the door. A blue one too.

I think someone’s looking for me. Not sure who though.

Tik tok tik tok.

Don’t tell anybody, but sometimes I think them kids go out to fly their kites just so that they can breathe for a while, but then again what do their mums cook them, that make them so wild?

You know why hippos can’t fly? It’s because they have this bug in their brains that tells them they can’t fly. I’ll bet you though they can.

I think I have those bugs too.

Someday I will get rid of them and I’ll be able to fly.

People get upset so easily; they get the wrong image,

You know? Like, just because of the same words in the same sentences but the different meanings; or, a second of hesitation just before saying yes or no. They immediately flip. That’s why I never mess with them.

I don’t understand those people. It’s a crazy world out there.

And if you’re not careful enough they might just catch you.

Maybe one day when you wake up you’ll find that eye staring into your door too. Then you’ll say: Yeah, someone once told me that.

Tik tok tik tok.

It’s late but my eyes are just wide open like a truck’s headlights.

Staring into nothing. Then I wake up next morning, like I never fell asleep.

I start to think:

It’s such a nice day we ought to be out there,

Under the sun.

It’s as if the whole world is gonna go up in flames –
